  I'm not saying they are currently charging that type of premium. The point is that they can charge a premium but if PC makers undercut their prices to the degree being discussed here, then Apple won't have to match price, but they will have to be competitive. Apple can easily command $999 when an equivelently equipped PC is $799. They could not command $1099 when the similar PC is $599. I never stated that Apple had to meet netbook pricing but merely used it to note...
Apple should be able to hit that price point and still keep their margins by that quarter of this year and they need to go ahead and do it.   Everyone can say they understand the concept of you get what you pay for and Apple can even command a premium but that premium isn't 200%+. Netbooks are easily hitting under $300. I'm certain that some PC makers will be able to hit $599 soon. Will those machines be better than Apple machines? No but Apple doesn't live in a...
MJ your article begins to hit the point but I haven't really seen one do it proper justice. Most of these "cuts" were exactly along the lines of what Republicans and some Democrats have proposed here though almost none of them have taken affect on either side of the Atlantic. I read a decent article in FT that noted most French cuts were in the rate at which they would continue to borrow money and in lowering their rate of debt acqusition.   So to "Ameicanize" our...
Just another one of those foolish articles running the numbers on the Obama economy.   The article even deals with all the rationalizations that Democrats are putting forward to justify the worst "recovery" in modern history.   Quote:   There is no way to rationalize away the awful job performance of Barack Obama.
  Jimmac, you look like a total clown. You are projecting badly. SDW provides a laundry list of issues and you just ignore them claiming he is ignore proof. You look like a buffoon.    
  This is a lie and likewise nonsense. You would never excuse a group in life merely because they don't happen to qualify for a particular area. You would never, for example, state that oil interests do no need regulation just because they are not banks. No one has declared that those who do not pay income taxes pay no taxes at all. Rather they have said they are less likely to be concerned about the effects of bad policy or bad programs when people like yourself with...
No if he wanted to look like a fool, he'd start a bunch of threads with bad logic, strawman arguments and largely centered around some talking points, ignore all the well reasoned responses and then call everyone who made them a bunch of names afterward.   The Obama has more people applying for disability per month than people getting jobs.   Food stamp rolls explode and so do people who do not want to work but do want to claim disability.   The only fools are those who...
You don't understand that when I engage in actions like this and you call them illegal, it is only because you are hateful and use racist slurs.
Btw, putting an end to loopholes like this would never allow us to consider avoiding tax increases. This doesn't exist. It isn't real. It is just a conservative meme.
If one wanted to target hypocrisy and broken promises, rather than musing about possibly raising taxes, wouldn't they discuss all the broken Democratic and promises specifically made by Obama to enact and follow PAYGO budgeting since 2006. They've only added $5 trillion in debt during Obama's first term and roughly another trillion in the years from 2006-2008 when they swore no additional spending would occur without either tax increases or cuts in other areas of...
